I have soooooo many people ask me how I get sooooo many LO's done!!!! Well..USUALLY, I get them done in around a 1/2 hour..and I am lucky, that the DT's that I am on give our "assignments" real super early, so I work on them in advance, so by the time the challenge comes out....(I usually have 3 of them come out at the same time!!) it looks like I just did a MILLION LO's all at once...but that isn't the case!!! In some cases, I may have done the LO's U are seeing about a month ago!! :):):) But, yes..when I sit down to make LO's, be it for challenges that I DT for, or for challenges that I want to play along in..I usually do 2 or 3 in one sitting and they take about a half hour each!!! :):):):):):):):)
Now for CONFESSION #2!! lol! :) I am so JEALOUS & ENVIOUS of ALL of my scrappy friends that can "make" something just DROP DEAD GORGEOUS...and then U read their comments and it says, "I just made this today with the scraps that were in front of me at my scrap table!" Sooooooooo jealous of that!! U see..I tell MYSELF all the TIME...that I am GOING COLLECT those little bits of paper that are piled up after I finish a LO...or the little pieces from the package that would LOOK AWESOME on that next page...but...*sigh* I am HORRIBLE at KEEPING the little scraps that collect after one of my LO's are done!!!! LOL!!! I TRY and TRY to keep them...but alas..my NEAT FREAKNESS kicks in....I can't stand all these little ODDS and ENDS sitting around JUST DRIVNG me crazy..and I know I will NEVER USE them...soooooo off to the recycle bin they go!!! LOL!! BUT BUT BUT BUT....I forced MYSELF this time...I decided to make a little wall hanging using Nikki Sivils's Henry's Brilliance papers, embellies, stamps and the chipboard album! :):):):):):):):) Soooooooo LITERALLY I have sat at my desk for the PAST TWO NIGHTS (notice nooooooooo 1/2 hour named in that sentence!! lol!) and made this present for my friend who is a teacher!! Hope SHE likes it!!!!! Hmmmm I not gonna say WHO it is FOR..but because I love her and she knows I kid her about this MOST days of the WEEK...lol...She is one of the CUTEST, most ADORABLE and SHORTEST (that's the teasing part! hehehe) Teachers I have EVER met!! I loveeeee her! :):):):):) Wonder if she can GUESS WHO I am talking about!?!?!?!?!?! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Soooooooo back to the "Julie never uses scraps of anything" story....I am working on this little project for my SHORT Teacher friend.....and I am DETERMINED to use the little scraps that have gathered around me as I am cutting here and cutting there....and YES!!! She did IT!!!! YAY ME!! lol!! :):):):):):):) And I STILL have a PILE of little scraps in front of me that are GONNA stay right here as I keep working on my next project for Nikki's paper line! :):):):):) Baby steps Julie....lol....Baby steps!!! :):):):):)
I used one of my favorite QUOTES about Teachers...."If You Can Read This, Thank A Teacher" and the only things on here that are NOT from Nikki's line are the ribbons..(but if it counts for anything...lol...she did send me the ribbons from her stash in my DT package!! She is soooooo sweet that WAY!) ...and let's see....I made the first owls nose out of one of the cut out stars from the papers, I made the second owls nose with one of the breadless tabs that I inked.....and hmmm I think that's the detail I need to share!!! lol! :):):):):):)
And now....here it is!!!!! :):):):):)
Tomorrow....I will be back and showing the newest Scrapping the Music LO I have made......Tomorrow's is gonna be wayyyyy special to all of us on the Scrapping the Music DT...and we hope that U feel it too! :):):):):) I came up with the song this time, and I TRULY want to thank Mary (the owner of Scrapping the Music) and the rest of the girls there for their support in doing the song that I chose!!!
